Space Technology Market Overview


The MRFR report predicts that the global space technology market will register a healthy growth rate of approximately 5.4% during the review timeframe from during the forecast period.


Space technology refers to a technology used in activities or travels beyond Earth's atmosphere for reasons such as space exploration or spaceflight. It includes space vehicles such as orbital launch vehicles, space stations, satellites, spacecraft; in-space propulsion; deep-space communication; and a broad range of other technologies including support infrastructure equipment and procedures. The global space technology market has registered a noteworthy spike in the growth rate in the past few years. The market's growth is mainly attributed to the growing innovations in the manufacture and launch of satellites—Furthermore, the factors such as the growing adoption of space farming and the development of space hotels. Moreover, the growing development of small satellites such as microsatellites, nanosatellites, and CubeSats is also projected to catalyze the market's growth over the coming years. The market has witnessed growth in demand for satellites by the military forces, which is likely to cause an upsurge in the market's growth over the assessment timeframe. On the other hand, the stringent government regulations related to satellite manufacturing, high costs related to research & development, and rising concerns relating to space debris are anticipated to act as a hurdle for the market's growth.


Segmentation of the Global Space Technology Market


On the basis of subsystem, the global space technology market has been divided into orbit, launch platform, launch vehicle, and payload. The payload segment dominated the global market in 2018. However, the launch vehicle segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing developments in the field of satellite launch vehicles are expected to drive the growth of the segment. For instance, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) developed a small satellite launch vehicle (SSLV). The vehicle has a payload capacity of 500 kg and can support multiple orbital drop-offs.


Based on end use, the market has been divided into civil, commercial, and military. The commercial segment dominated the market in 2018 and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increase in the number of satellites being launched by companies worldwide. For example, in May 2019, SpaceX launched 60 Starlink satellites to offer high-speed Internet connectivity across the globe. Furthermore, the growing concept of space tourism is expected to drive the growth of the segment.


In terms of region, the global space technology market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the World. The North American market dominated the global space technology market in 2018 owing to the presence of prominent space organizations such as NASA. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The availability of low-cost satellites and advanced technology are driving the growth of the market in the region. Furthermore, increasing number of space technology start-ups such as Bellatrix Aerospace (India) Private Limited and Exseed Space (India) is anticipated to drive the growth of the market in the region.
